As promised in my previous article, here is my round up of developments related to the British government’s plans for an ID card with associated national identity register:

In summary, it seems that more and more problems with the scheme are being highlighted, but the government wishes to press on, whilst the opposition increases and hardens. The ID card and national identity register are but the most visible and intrusive of various schemes where the government wishes to capture, use and share data about the mass population, my next article will thus be round-up of more general developments in privacy and the use of personal data.
